Decorator crabs are difficult. There are so many of them and unless they're extremely particular in their choice of covering, have to be stripped down to be properly identified. Based on the long leg spines I'd call this an Oncinopus. They're commonly & mistakenly lumped together in guide books as Achaeus japonicus.
